Vinnie the tour guide for the day was easy to communicate with and asked if we wanted to see the dolphins that he had spotted, we said yes and were amazed at them swimming alongside of us The seals were also amazing and we were able to...

Me and my friend went for road trip. On the way we heard about the MUST tour of the seals. Great and modest person, great tour guide, explain everything and just did great time for us. Took is to the seals colony, inside caves and great ride. Worth every dollar you pay. Highly recommended.

I've done this tour twice - about 8 years ago and about 3 months ago. It was fascinating both times, but the recent tour was a blend of great timing, extraordinary closeness to the animals, and just enough exposure to wild sea, awesome cliffs and reef to make it edgy. It's safe though, and the guide is careful and knowledgable.... More

Incredible experience! An absolutely must do! Park the car on carpark on hill then walk down path to jetty. We went out with a group of 10 on the boat right up to rocks near seals. Lots of adult seals lay on rocks looking at us but heaps of seal pups came right up to the boat. They were curious... More

We're so glad we went on this tour, shared the small boat with another couple and grandfather with his grandson. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the seals and he steered the boat within clear view of the seals, the inquisitive pups swam right up to the boat. You'll need to pre book although we never, and were lucky... More

Amazing views of seal colonies from the sea that provides an aspect that can't be seen from the land. Out skipper and tour guide, Vinney, knows the area so well and can talk about the location, geology, seal colonies and local ecology in amazing detail. One of the best tours I have ever done. Vinney has incredible control of the... More

This was a fantastic tour! We were able to get very close to the seals and Vinny had so much knowledge about the seals and the area in general. Along with being really friendly this was well worth the treck down the hill!
